hello mid-october. it feels like i just returned from burning man, but NO—it was over a month ago! what a slacker i am. to explain burning man to someone who has never been is painful and damn near impossible (for me, at least). so here’s a quick visual re-cap of this year’s burn:
day 1—waited in the longest (and most exhilarating) line of my life.
day 2—move in + rain! + rare supernumerary double rainbow.
day 3—campmate sleeps + first view of the temple + silly self portrait + campmate porta anxiety + party time + bliss dance + deutsch hilarity + happy glow.
day 4—biking with campmate + frolicking in my bloomers (thanks mom) + up all night + dodge a dragon + bubble sunrise + sigh…
day 5—alien sighting at center camp + sensory overload + meet martin + temple snuggling + middle of nowhere + surprise! 4am grilled cheese under the stars + stumbling home in the dark.
day 6—raining skydivers + one last ride out to the man + waved goodbye to the lamplighters.
for a wonderful literary description of burning man, here’s the best i’ve read by robin esrock.
